Ryan Garcia Releases His Hitlist for Fights At 140
Junior welterweight contender “King” Ryan Garcia (23-1, 19KO) is ready to get back into the ring and has dropped a hitlist of names he wants to fight next.
When looking at the names on the list, Garcia has a history with all three fighters. WBA Regular champion Rolando “Rolly” Romero has been campaigning hard for a fight with Garcia.
Boxing fans believed a fight was on the verge of happening after the Californian publicly accepted the challenge. However, the WBA ordered Rolly to fight Ohara Davies, putting any plans of them fighting on hold.
In 2022, Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz was targeted by Golden Boy Promotions as a potential opponent for King Ryan. Moreover, the WBC ordered them to fight in a title eliminator, and Garcia quickly took to social media looking to make the fight. Unfortunately, the fight never became a reality.
Former unified lightweight champion Teofimo “The Takeover” Lopez and Garcia’s history goes back to when they both were campaigning in the lightweight division. During the 2020 global pandemic that shut down all sports for five months, Lopez took to social media trash-talking Garcia and undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney.
King Ryan is looking to return to the sport with a bang after losing to Gervonta Davis on April 22. Now that Garcia is ready to compete full-time in the junior welterweight division, it will be interesting to see what contender he matches against first.
